An aging water supply line that stretches from the North Hollywood Pump Station to Ivanhoe Reservoir in Silver Lake will be replaced over the next decade as part of a major water quality improvement project by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
The River Supply Conduit is a 70-year-old pipeline that transports water from the San Fernando Valley to central Los Angeles. Its replacement will be 36,000 linear feet of new pipe of varying widths. The massive project has been divided into an Upper and a Lower Reach.
The Upper Reach portion of the project will connect the North Hollywood Pump Station to the new Headworks Reservoir that is to be constructed adjacent to Griffith Park. Construction will begin in March 2010 and finish in July 2012.
